Could someone explain why this factoid has any
bearing on the issue? I've seen this presented
before and it makes no sense to me. GPS also
"operates" on TAI: as I'm sure you all know, by
definition, GPS internal time is TAI - 19 s.

Or put it another way, can you think of a single
application where GPS cannot already deliver
the same TAI as Galileo will someday deliver?
